Bothnian Bay National Park

Traces of fishing traditions at the northern end of the Baltic!

The drawn emblem of Perämeri national park. An arctic tern and the Siberian primrose is depicted inside the oval symbol. The text Perämeri – national park in Swedish and Finnish wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.The wide and open waters of the Bothnian Bay invite boaters. Take a break at a fishing hut and admire the sea through its window, just like a fisherman. The plinths and the drying racks for fishing nets are signs of the life in the past, on the rugged islands in the middle of this northern sea. During the winter, the arctic sea and packed ice fascinate tourists.

National parks are nature reserves, whose key task is to safeguard biodiversity and enable people to enjoy and relax in nature on the terms of nature conservation.
All national parks in Finland are managed by Metsähallitus.
